International Jazz Day 2019
Not gonna lie – this gig was epic. I was contracted as the Ticketing Coordinator and supported with event management across multiple programs and activations across the festival. Specific events I worked on included a sold-out Hamer Hall concert at the Melbourne Arts Centre (dream venue alert), a closed event at Government House with local dignitaries and the DG of UNESCO and an invite-only special event where I was lucky enough to witness 20+ of the world’s best jazz musicians have an impromptu jam night. Working with music legends Herbie Hancock and James Morrison, this experience will stay with me for the rest of my life. It’ll be a while before I wipe that goofy grin off my face.
